Eunna Oh: Airborne Art Project

    “Flying Grove”

    The forest is precious and meaningful space in my artwork. A forest is an infinite place that can give me peace and vital power. And there, the consciousness of ego can be enlarged to the realm of being beyond the real world. At the same time, I can reach to an infinite primal place and meet with my genuine self.

    I have found the sources of imagination in the forest, that is a space of life force. Water, fire, soil, air, and plants are the sources of life and important element in my artwork. Also, these images are made of the new creature in the canvas.

    I wondered how the vintage aircraft parts would be changed to one-of-a-kind art. However, the vintage aircraft parts recreated to small and warm flying groves through my imagination. I want us to be comforted through my grove.

    Airborne Art 2017

    Back in 2014, our storage areas were bursting at the seams with surplus airplane parts. We asked the art community to bring new life to some unique pieces of “canvas.” A piece of scrap metal, loop antennas, pieces of exhaust—the vintage aircraft parts became one-of-a-kind art.

    The finished pieces were donated back to the Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada for charitable fundraising.

    Our first Airborne Art Project was so successful we invited artists to collaborate with us again. We’re very excited that the pieces are now starting to be unveiled and returned to us here at the museum.

    This is our third year of the program and we couldn’t be more excited. The level of participation and quality of the art is amazing and gives the museum a unique fundraising opportunity that no other organization has.

    The art is displayed in the museum and auctioned at our Out of the Blue Gala on Saturday, October 21, 2017.
